Cage Without BarsDAISY - 2015
Lucy Jackson, wife of twenty years and mother of two, unexpectedly shoots her much-respected husband at point blank range. Defense attorney Forrest Spencer, a long-time friend, discovers that she has been a victim of protracted psychological abuse by her spouse. While Battered Woman's Syndrome has found its way into US courts as a defense strategy for homicide, psychological abuse, though very real, has not. Spencer seeks a not guilty verdict on the basis of Lucy's state of mind that led her to believe that violence was her only option. Sequel to ?Stolen child?. 2014.
